PURCHASES.

Vendor and Dower-Trustee, (Modern Form).

(A) Variation by way of addition to the usual Covenant for

production of Title Deeds, where the Vendor took to Uses to bar Dower (1)

At the conclusion of the usual covenant for production of title deeds. (which see Vol. 1. No. XVI. p. 183, and ante, No. XXXI. p. 39), add,

AND FURTHER, that if the said (vendor) shall at any time or times hereafter, in exercise of the said power or authority to him limited or given, as hereinbefore is menționed, appoint and convey the other hereditaments to which the said deeds, evidences, and writings relate as aforesaid, or any of them, to any person or persons, and shall deliver to him, her, or them, the said deeds, evidences, and writings, or any of them, then and in such case be the said (vendor), his heirs, executors, or administrators, shall and will, at the request of the said (purchaser), his heirs or assigns, and the proper costs and charges of the person or persons requiring the same, procure the person or persons to whom the said other hereditaments shall be so appointed and conveyed, and the said deeds, evidences, and writings so delivered as aforesaid, to enter into a covenant with the said (purchaser),

(1) These additional covenants are sometimes made in consequence of the power of appointment given to the vendor on the principle before adverted to (see ante, p. 13, n. (1)), namely, that as the estate of the covenantor is not derived from that to which his covenant is attached, such covenant is collateral to and does not run with the estate. In order therefore to secure the fulfilment of the covenants, it is requisite either that they should run with the land, or that others should be given when they cease to be attached to the estate. But as damages only, and not a specific performance, it is apprehended, could be obtained under this any more than the ordinary form, little seems to be gained by the addition.

Vendor and of the said deeds, evidences, and writings, or such of them as Dover shall be so delivered as aforesaid: And also that if in such (Modern Form). appointment of such other hereditaments as aforesaid, a general power of appointment shall be limited to the person or persons to whom the same shall be so appointed, and the said deeds, evidences, and writings, or any of them delivered as aforesaid ; then and in such case he the said (vendor), his heirs, executors, or administrators, shall and will, at such request, costs, and charges as lastly aforesaid, procure such person or persons to enter into a further covenant with the said (purchaser), his heirs and assigns, whereby such person or persons shall promise and agree to procure, from his, her, or their appointees, covenants with the said (purchaser), his heirs and assigns, similar to those which the said (vendor) hath by these presents covenanted to procure from his appointees, so that all and every the person and persons in whom the said other hereditaments to which the said deeds, evidences, and writings relate as aforesaid, shall for the time being be vested, and who for the time being shall be entitled to have the possession of the said deeds, evidences, and writings, shall be bound by the covenant to or with the said (purchaser), his heirs and assigns, for the production of the same, and for the safe custody and giving copies thereof, in the same manner as the said (vendor), his heirs, executors, and administrators, is and are by the covenants hereinbefore contained liable thereto.

Conveyance of Freehold Premises from Vendor and

his Trustee to bar Dower, to a Purchaser and his Trustee for the like Purpose. Concise Form (1).

Small purchase. (1) The conveyance from a vendor and his trustee to a pur

chaser and his trustee to uses to bar dower being now so much in use, I have thought it would be a convenience to the practitioner to have presented to him for small purchases, a more concise form than that given in the preceding No. (XXXIV). This form is that (saving a few very trifling alterations) which was used by the late Mr. Watkins, who was one of the most concise, and at the same time one of the most accurate of our

modern draftsmen. Copyholds. (2) It will often be more convenient to have the copyhold

part of the premises assured by a separate deed of covenant, in which case see Vol. I. No. XVIII. p. 232, et seq.
